How do Blogging U. courses work?

Blogging U. courses exist for one reason: to help you meet your own blogging and writing goals.

  • Courses are free, flexible, and open to all.
  • You’ll get a task, writing prompt, or tutorial to work on to each weekday at midnight GMT, along with our best advice and favorite resources. Do them on your own time, and interpret them however makes sense for your specific blog and personal goals — we’re not grading you, we’re not checking to make sure you complete every task, and there’s no “wrong” way to use the resources we give you. Weekends are free!
  • Each course has a private community site, the Commons, for chatting, connecting, and seeking feedback and support. Daily Post staff and Happiness Engineers will be on hand to answer your questions and offer guidance and resources.

  1. I have registered for the Writing 101 and the Blogging 101 courses. I just completed the Writing 201 course, and I really enjoyed it! So let’s see what these new courses have to offer!

  2. I’m registered for both blogging and writing 101, I can’t wait to learn and practice more! I’ve already learned so much from my own searches and others’ helpful information but I know I will learn things I couldn’t learn that way and that excites me.

  3. It looks like Blogging 201 has changed some from the description on the website versus the description in the email; that the focus is more on blog customization versus boosting traffic and social media. Am I reading that correctly?

    Also, when will the Blogging U photo class be presented again? I’ve seen that description and would love to do that.
    Thanks-

    1. There are two different Blogging 201 classes now: Blogging 201: Branding and Growth, and Blogging 201: Intermediate Customization. Next month, we’re offering the customization course; the other will return in December.

  4. I am new to blogging. Which is why I am so excited to take these courses. I am praying that one day soon I will be able to quit my job and become a full time blogger as my career.

  5. November 2nd marks my first work day as a retiree. I’ve been stalled so long trying to work full time, manage family illness and eye issues. No longer working full time finally makes it possible to become more focused in new ways (no pun intended). Blogging 101 seems like the best possible way to really give my retirement project life. Thanks to the Automatic team for providing this wonderful resource!
